Lindsey Vonn and Other U.S. Olympians Win Gold
Last night, team USA took home six medals at the Winter Olympics, and three of them were gold.
Last night was a huge night for Team USA at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The team took home six medals, the most they’ve ever won in one day in Winter Olympics history.
Among the winners was Lindsey Vonn who, despite her shin injury, finally won the gold medal she’d been hoping for in women’s downhill skiing. She was by far the fastest, finishing the course in 1 minute, 44.19 seconds. “This is everything I’ve wanted and hoped for,” Vonn said.
Vonn’s American teammate, Julia Mancuso, took home the silver for women’s downhill, and American Shani Davis won the gold for men’s 1,000 meter speedskating. Shaun White predictably took home gold for snowboarding, and Scotty Lago and Chad Hedrick won medals in their respective sports. (Huffington Post, Newser)
